Comments Viz 40-70í - nutrient rich which made for constantly feeding soft and hard corals, some surge, chop and small white caps, wind would rise and fall, 2-10 mph increasing the afternoon chop. water temp 77-80 degrees - colder than normal, 5mm was a bit cold for me. Air temp 79-83 partly cloudy. I did carry a reef hook but never experienced current.

The resort was heavily booked due to Chinese New Years - 90+ guests with few rooms to choose from when we booked. We selected a large garden apartment, which was on the first floor of a 2 story duplex. These are located closest to the road and a long walk down the lawn (400 yards maybe) past the other cottage type rooms, with their open porches, to the spa, dive shop, small souvenir shop and open air restaurant which sits closest to the water between 2 pools. One pool is for scuba training and lap swimming adjacent to the open air bar. The grounds are maintained daily with a large staff and the compound was well secured. They were building more villas, a dining kitchen and another pool next door.

Diving - the fully and well supplied diving center and teaching center is open 7 to 7. They post on a marker board what, when, who and where. Up to 4 dive options each day starting in the morning at 8, then either a back to back or a return and out again at 10, then out again at 3pm and a night mandarin dive. They were very accommodating about our joining up anytime, with our requests on locations and we cancelled one afternoon due to high winds. They have many other types of tours and excursions offered too - including a whale shark which we didnít do mainly because the holiday crush and I think they feed them to contain them in Oslob.

The rinse tanks are kept well signed and clean. There is a good photo room I didnít use. They give you a box for gear storage and hanging cubby in the open drying room which has a fan that actually dries your suits. After sorting our gear from our luggage in our room they picked it up and set up everything perfectly for us every day. Nitro was free - very nice. ... Subscribe to get the full story.
